Simplifying Therapy for Hereditary AngioedemaDiplomat Specialty Infusion Group combines clinical expertise with personalized care.
HAE causes attacks of severe swelling, usually in the limbs, face, airway, and intestines. Swelling in the airway can restrict breathing and lead to life-threatening airway obstruction.
About one in every 50,000 people has HAE. It is usually inherited, but it can occur with no family history. Symptoms usually begin in childhood and get more intense during puberty.
There are three different types of HAE, but all three have similar symptoms. The type depends on the level of a protein called C1 inhibitor in the bloodstream. About 85% of patients with HAE have Type 1; about 15% have Type 2. Type 3 is extremely rare.

What are the symptoms of hereditary angioedema?
In addition to swelling, HAE attacks can cause abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. About a third of patients will develop a rash called erythema marginatum.
The frequency and duration of HAE attacks varies. In general, they last three to four days and happen about once every one to two weeks. Attacks can be triggered by stress, but often they have no clear cause.
